Parrot Podcasts

Learning is always a positive thing to do. One of the many ways I stay updated and informed about parrots is by listening to parrot podcasts. When I would be at work, I would put in one earpiece, go to my podcast and click play. Many times, I had to stop working to take down notes. My cleaning routine was created off of a podcast.

The definition of a podcast based off of Dictionary.com is:

pod·cast/ˈpädˌkast/

  1. a digital audio file made available on the Internet for downloading to a computer or mobile device, typically available as a series, new installments of which can be received by subscribers automatically

I’m not sure if there are paid for podcasts but all the podcasts I’ve listened to have been free. Which I love! hahaha. So if you’re looking for other ways to expand your knowledge, definitely consider listening to podcasts. Parrotdise Perch is suppose to be offering podcast sessions every Sunday (don’t quote me as it hasn’t started yet). The podcasts on parrots that I completed was https://petliferadio.com/wingspg.html. I will continue to look for more podcasts I believe Lara Joseph has a facebook group called Level 1 and she has some podcasts in there. I’m only a part of her Parrot Project so we don’t have access to them.

If you know of any parrot podcasts please list them in the comments below so we can all continue to learn how to better our companions’ lives.

A New Parrot

So if you follow our YouTube or our Instagram, you already know we got a new Parrotlet. Very sweet boy. He was hatched on March 11, 2019 and is our very first store bought bird.

I got him from Ziggy’s Feathered Friends in Dorchester, Ontario. I’m so against getting birds from pet stores that I keep worrying something may be wrong with him (bad past experience). Ziggy’s is great so I’m sure nothing is wrong but my anxiety can’t help it. He is quarantined from the rest of the birds and I wash my hands after interacting with him. He is parent-raised so I’ve been slowly engaging with him. He is very energetic and has such a beautiful personality. I’m recording our interactions for our “Training and Taming Tuesdays” segments on our YouTube channel.

This first week with him, I’ve asked my YouTube and Instagram families for help naming him. The top 5 names have been: Ziggy (my name suggestion), Cloudie, Sky, Pisces and Azure. First name to get 10 votes will be his name. So please pick one. Once a name has been chosen this will be updated.
